Terminology/Vocabulary: • Level of significance: The chance of rejecting a true null hypothesis – determines critical values. • Critical Values: delineate the rejection/nonrejection regions. • Rejection Region: The possible values for the test statistic that lead you to Reject H0. • Non-Rejection Region: The possible values for the test statistic that lead you to Fail to Reject H0. • Test Statistic: statistic used to determine whether the null hypothesis should be rejected, or not. • Type I and Type II Errors: “RR” or “FF”. 2.
